Heritage sheep breeds, ink as the new souvenir sock skein, and Marsha's realization that she needs to get out of her basement are all on the agenda this week. Plus, a reminder that we have just over a month left of our Summer Spin In.
Wool fiber carding and preparation is our topic in this episode as our Summer Spin In continues. Current spinning and knitting projects along with a couple of rants are also on the program!
How to select a wool fleece and where to purchase a wool fleece are today's topics. This might cause money to fly out of your wallet so beware! Also, some interesting pooling shows up in an FO.
Our Summer Spin In is underway and in this episode we answer listener questions on washing a fleece and drafting techniques.
In this episode we discuss knitting with handspun yarn, including estimating yardage, picking needle size, and selecting potential patterns. Kelly crochet's a blanket and Marsha is almost finished with her knit tee.
